    Need quick advice on pool coping/tile issue

    Hello all I am using a natural stone for my coping and they are not all the same thickness. Should I keep them level on the top and make up the difference in the grout line or leave them uneven on the top and grind/taper the edges where they meet each other and the paver deck? I am leaning toward keeping the top level, and adjusting the grout line between the tile and bottom of coping. What do you all think would look the best? Thanks for the quick responses!

    It would really help if you could get stones that were all the same thickness. If that's not possible, then I would make the top level.

    I was hoping they would all be close, but I guess that why they are natural...

    You won't see much of a change on the bottom when you make them level on the top. You may see it, but noone else will. I used bluestone with different thicknesses on my hot tub and when you look below, it's obvious, but noone else but me notices. They all enjoy the hot tub instead.
